Who doesn’t like them? Their quotes are the best. How can you not like someone following you around saying “Your cute”?

So far, as of 14 voters, no one does not want GIFTS in other games, and the lowest it has gone is so-so.
Wow. I thought people found them irritating. It even says in BoA scen VoDT that not much is more irritating then the GIFTS.
Well, universal laws indicate SOMEONE will hate them:)

The GIFTS scare my dad.........But you have to admit that they're one of the most awesome things that Spiderweb Software has come up with.

The Giant Inteligent Friendly Talking Roaches, however, were kinda creepy. ~_~

Soy sauce makes everything better. Except for Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Spiders. Soy sauce makes Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Spiders all sticky. And it makes them smell funny. But soy sauce makes everything else better. Just not Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Spiders.

A person has to go REALLY low(or get really high) to hate them.

I love the Spiders, especially compared to the Areanas... I just don't want them in any other games. We should have something equally unique and annoying :P

According to the results, I must quote myself. I said Universal Law indicates somone will hate them.
And I was right. Someone hates the GIFTS.

I love them! If I lived in Valorim, I'd make sure I'd go over for tea and help them catch their 'big bugs'. Then we could eat them! Just joking! I'd have a hot fudge sundae. ;)

I wouldn't not want them in every scenario, but I wouldn't want them particularly much either. I lkie them - but I sometimes just want to blast them all to smithereens because they're so cheery. Honestly, it could be Armageddeon and they would still be cheery!!!

I made a small little, 'adjustment' to the custom items in VoDT(then changed it back again after I was done) where the player could pick up a potion of quickfire in the GIFT cave. :D I used the quickfire, there was QUICKFIRE flying through their TUNNELS, KILLING THEM! I talked to ONE! and he said 'Hi! Your cute!' in a CHEERY voice. So yes Mr.Archmagi Micael, they WOULD be cheery in Armageddeon! :eek: :D

Thanks for checking it out. Did you make a new potion for it or not? because I haven't seen any Quickfire Potion in the Editor.

I usually don't trifle myself with puny insects but they did help the surface explorers on the Isle of Bigail so I kind of tolerate them. :cool:

Yes, your right about making it up, its a simple script, and very dangoures too. It makes quickfire where the drinker is. It's a custom item from a scenerio im working on.

EDIT: Whats with the sad face for your last post. I thought it was quite funny...

There is a very easy way to tell a GIFTS appart from a question mark. You see, one as a swirl and a dot, and the other has 6-8 legs and runs around saying 'your cute' :D
Im just joking with you man ;) Really, I dont understand what you mean.

Just for a thought, who voted that they hate the GIFTS? You dont have to show who you are if you dont want to, but I am curious.
And here is a question that was not on the poll because I just thought it up.
What do you think of the color? Does it suit the GIFTS?

Kinda like the GIFTC (Cockroaches) better because they aren't as cheery and they've got cooler names.

Ok. I understand. Maybe the GIFTS should have bar codes. Then when you get the scanner, you can tell who they are.
Hey. Thats a good idea.... nah...

Unfortunately, they're all called Spider anyway, so the scanner wouldn't be a great deal of help.

I had a sad face because I don't know how to make custom items. All my attempts end up in total, miserable failure... :(

You think your scripts end up that way, Archimage Micael, but look at some of mine. One is where a wand would transform a foe into another one. It ended up killing the party member that was first in line :(
you will get the hang of it, eventually.
